from moving forward:
- Fear of failure: Trying and failing is worse than not trying at all.
- Fear of success: If I do well, others will have higher expectations of me that I may not be able to meet.
- Fear of rejection: Others may get jealous of my success and try to put me down.
- Fear of role-loss: Trying and succeeding may require me to move out of my comfort zone into unfamiliar territory.
